, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in
. virginia democratic state senator john s. edwards told me on my radio show that democrats were completely blindsided by this move. >> it was a complete underhanded sneak attack on not only democrats but also the people of virginia because if people had had no prior warning this would happen there, have been no committee discussions on this, no hearings on this, and it runs contrary to the courtesies and traditions of the senate of virginia. >> they should be no courtesy from the current republican party. they are willing to admit these changes are being made in order to make certain votes count for less. carrico told a virginia nbc affiliate the change is necessary because virginia's populace, urbanized areas can outvote rural regions such as his, rendering their will irrelevant. urbanized areas? this sounds like something we've heard before. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout, especially in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in novem
, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don't bring rpgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. >> but the harshest criticism of all came from paul legacy, senator rand paul, whose ambitions and disrespect seem to know no bounds. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility, i think ultimately with you leaving you're accepting responsibility for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "ir

"the bill got no traction last year. there were people convinced that romney was going to win and this might take electoral votes from him. but now that romney lost, now maybe even rick snyder, the governor, warming up to the idea. publicly, he's saying it's fair to change the rules since the election is not for a few more years yet. we started with six states on the map, republicans talking about changing the rules to elect the president so you could use the gerrymandered congressional maps to make the presidential election go the way the house vote went this year, where democrats got more votes, but republicans still held the office. we start with a map of six. two states have put the idea in the deepest part of the deep

rd. there's a new debt ceiling plan from speaker john boehner and the house republicans that could force senate democrats to finally show their hand and pass a budget. plus it's only day four of president obama's second term, but joe biden is already commenting on possibly running for the top job himself in 2016. we'll show you what he said in a minute. first the new developments in the debate over guns in america. the national rifle association last night delivered a sharp response to president obama's inaugural address. speaking in reno, nevada, way waywayn wayne lapierre lashed out at one word from president obama. >> we cannot mistake absolutism, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it's a way of redefining words so that commonsense is turned upside down and that nobody knows the difference. >> lapierre vowed not to give ground on gun control including effor
second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have a stellar group of guests joining us throughout the day. honestly, to cut to the chase, it is pretty much everybody you know from msnbc. plus, visits with some members of the obama administration, folks from congress, we'll have live reports from the capitol and all along the parade route. and who knows what surprises along the way. it will be a fun day. reverend al sharpton and chris hayes are joining us onset as the day goes along. alongside me are melissa maris perry, ed schultz and the one and only chris matthews. mr. matthews, this is, i think of this as chris christmas. >> i think of the alternative it could be today. john bolden becoming secretary of state, the coke brothers up on the podium with donald trump, it is not tha

the answer to that question. governor rendell, lightning didn't strike john mccain when he admitted his own party had a problem. there seems to be some truth talking, some movement towards compromise. are you optimistic about this? >> well, first of all, i'm glad senator mccain said what he did because we don't want the republicans to get any credit for having a moral -- they're doing this because they can read election returns, and they've got to fwet this issue at least beyond them. they have to understand there's a price to pay. do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on 100% background check? do they pay the price if they're obstructionist on high capacity magazines in they have to make that decision. on the fiscal cliff themselves, do they pay the price if they don't do something that is commonsense and a workable approach to debt? energy. all these things. we like wee winding tape to 2007 and -- george w. bush is really -- that tape speaks for itself. gornl bush did in 2007 introduce immigration reform that went basically nowhere. he made personal calls to members of his own p
for the next couple of days. i'm here with john pod hotter and bill kristol, founder and editor of "the weekly standard," and we're going to get right into it. john podhoretz -- >> podhoretz -- >> john podhoretz, you wrote a book a few years back called "bush country" in which you celebrated the achievements of our 43rd president, and george w. bush was a guy who thought deeply about imuation reform, poverty and trying to craft a middle class agenda for the gop. george w. bush is a figure that many republicans have been running away from. so tell me, do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> i'm sorry, what? i was tweeting. i'm sorry. [laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of th

, the loophole. john manchin, has made some moves. he campaigned vigorously with, you know, an advertisement that had a rifle a couple of years ago. where do you think leading republicans should be to try to join this debate? >> i think joe manchin's point in that commercial wasn't the rifle. it was shooting obama's energy policy with the rifle. i'll let joe speak for himself. >> you look at connecticut where this awful, sickening crime occurred. everything that guy did was illegal already. if -- it's just a reminder if you make having guns fwens the law, the only people that will have guns are criminals. that's the way -- that's the result in connecticut. >> the supreme court has already ruled in the heller case that there can be exceptions, that the d.c. gun law was unconstitutional, but other assault weapon bans might not be unconstitutional. the constitution does not preclude other restrictions on guns, and background checks. and other measures that are considered and have widespread support. do you think that republicans should take a closer look at some of the other options in the afte

then colorado was more red. and this was when john kerry was on the ballot. so, look, at the end of the day, messing with the way the founding fathers structured the electoral college system could come back to bite you easily. so today in one particular state, i agree with reince priebus in this sense that today we've got a lot of blue states that we're winning, and some of those states were red states previously, and they may go back. and demographics in politics shift. we need to stick with the founding fathers' original concept because that's what is fair. >> is there any state where you're worried this is going to catch on and there is going to be a shift? >> i think it's a bit early to tell, but i can assure you that we are certainly not going to let it go too far down the road without fighting back. >> all right. congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz, thanks for your time tonight on this. >>> now let's go to nina turner. nina, you and i were talking about this in d.c. earlier this week. could this happen in your state? are the wheels in motion in ohio? >> not as of yet, ed. we know t

, john heilemann, wrote this fascinating piece about the relationship describing it as a political marriage of convenience of sorts. he wrote that, quote, if obama wins, it may be because the former president saved his presidency, but what exactly do the clintons get in return? has there been or was there at some point a sort of a wink, wink, nod, nod, a handshake of sorts between the two? >> i can't imagine that that's possible at all. i think what you saw with president clinton was a commitment to stand up for what he believed in in this country, and he believed that barack obama would make the best president for our country at the time. folks who want to engage in conspiracy theories and anything other than one former president certainly understands better than anyone else what a current president has done and what it took to achieve that, that's all it was. >> kiki, there have been some questions about secretary clinton's health. is she healthy enough for a presidential run? >> i think she's healthy enough for anything she wants to do. i wish i was as healthy as she is. you kn

of transition for american foreign policy as senator john kerry faces a high-stakes job interview to be the secretary of state. kerry's confirmation hearings were rather cordial hosted by the foreign relations committee which he's led for the past four years. but it was an unexpected moment when the hearings were interrupted by a protester that offered perhaps the most telling revelation about the man and the moment. >> i'm tired of my friends dying. i don't know if they're going to be alive the next day. >> when i first came to washington and testified, i obviously was testifying as part of a group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about. people measure what we do. >> kerry's confirmation hearing today comes a day after secretary hillary clinton stood her ground offering a robust defense of her handling of those attacks in benghazi that killed four americans, including ambassador chris stevens. at wednesday's long-awaited hearings on benghazi, clinton took responsibility for security lapses but that obviously was not go
